Thanks to hearing about a cool download program over in the comments of a post over on One Man’s Pony Ramblings I’ve been messing around with Calibre and downloading ponyfics once again. I had gotten out of the habit because the FimFiction automatic ebook download is kinda broken, so I’ve been reading most of the stories on the website. Now I’ve been trying out using Calibre and its “FanFicFare” plugin to download fanfics instead. Early signs look good! Even having fun making covers for the books. The person who suggested it over on Chris’ blog claims it will even grab author’s notes, which I’ve been enjoying reading on the site since the FimFiction ebooks don’t include them so I didn’t even know I was missing them in the stories I was reading. Going through my favorites bookshelf for stories to download (I want to make an archive of the fanfics I really like) was an interesting trip. Many older stories had new covers since I last looked at them, and got reminded of a few good stories I haven’t thought of in over a year.
- Pony Planet: Side Stories by Admiral Biscuit
- Fluttershy Doesn’t Have A Kitchen! by theRedBrony
- Fluttershy and Celestia Play Chess by BronyWriter
Fun stuff. Just bits and pieces that didn’t fit into the main story. If you like Onto The Pony Planet you should give this a read. If you haven’t, go read it then come read this one. It’s a good dose of the good story stuff that I was suffering withdrawal from while waiting for Onto The Pony Planet to finish up.
Has some amusing moments. Not really amazing, but short enough that reading it wasn’t a waste of time.
Hee. I wasn’t sure about this one at the beginning, but by the end I was enjoying it. Fluttershy’s dialogue was a bit too much cliche Fluttershy, but otherwise she was portrayed fairly well.
